"King Guru cool off in 'Wayside'"

This is an older number, but the time is right — the summer heat is coming on strong, and that steam off the sidewalk leaves us all dreaming of belly flops in the pool and spending the whole day by a waterfall. King Guru, recently back from a quick tour up and down the East Coast, delivers the easy flowing single “Wayside” to match the videos summertime appeal. Nik Howlett (guitar, vocals), Clark Hamilton (guitar, vocals), Danielle Dollar (vocals, percussion, guitar), Anthony Doud (drums), and Daniel Hyman (bass) look perfectly at ease in the clip filmed by Nick May and edited by Rebecca Gerhard and Michelle Lung. Throw a few more ice cubes in your drink, cut those jeans into jorts, and start planning your warm weather adventures. - Creative Loafing

"Young Atlanta becomes one at Peace Fest"

On May 7, 2016, a collective of young Georgia Tech engineering students calling themselves Patio Mob unwittingly hosted one of the most diverse music festivals of the summer. Peace Fest took over No Man's Land skate park — an unassuming warehouse in the West End — for a day of music and lounging.

On most days, No Man's Land bustles with young skaters drawn to the building's half-pipes and wide-open concrete spaces. But for one Saturday afternoon, mobs of young kids gathered to spend the day listening to music. Face painters, a tampon drive from Peach Coven, rock bands, electronic dance beats, and lose-your-mind hip-hop performances all combined into a daylong celebration of diversity and diversion. All told, 17 bands spread out across the outdoor Yin stage and the indoor Yang stage.

Walking around the skate park, it was difficult to tell who was playing that day and who was there just hanging out. A lack of distinction between band members and festivalgoers led to performers blending in at the front of the stage, lost in a young scene ready to put their phones down and celebrate with their hands in the air.

Sea Ghost, King Guru, Dog Lover 420, Larry League, and Danger Incorporated led unhinged performances for an explosive crowd. A scene with this much raw, youthful energy could only grow out of the tangled kudzu and ruins of a derelict industrial warehouse district — and with this many bands, could only be rendered with this much orderly chaos by a group of engineering students.
King Guru played the outdoor Yin stage as the sun set over No Man's Land. - Creative Loafing
